Dance is an important part of River's life and self-expression. He came first in Level 1 Dance and was the leader of the school's Stage Challenge dance group. He was also co-leader and one of the choreographers of the Mega School Dance group that competed at the Vodafone Events Centre. River is also very involved with the sporting life of the school representing One Tree Hill College in tennis and hockey.
He plans to study Health Science at University and has volunteered for health-based charities in his community.
"River has many qualities, including a zest for life and resilience. He is driven by his desire to learn and excel and because of this he succeeds," said One Tree Hill College Principal Nick Coughlan.
